Pocket Resume is an iPad application that guides its user through the usually difficult and cumbersome task of putting together a resume. After opening and naming the resume, the user merely needs to follow the simple instructions, and the outcome is a perfectly laid out resume containing all of the information that a prospective employer would require. Using the iPad application can be compared to filling in a form. The resume is divided into categories such as: basic info; profile; experience; education; skills; references, and other. Each category can be opened up, and all the user needs to do is fill in the blanks. The user is also able to test out a number of different styles and choose the layout, colours and look that best suites his/her requirements. Finally, the resume can be sent via email, or uploaded to a DropBox account.
Numerous resumes can be created and saved, allowing the iPad application to be shared by multiple users. Resumes can be added or deleted at any time with ease, but before deleting any resume, the user has to confirm that he/she wants to delete so as to prevent any unwanted loss of information. At any time in the process, the user is able to ask for support from the creator of the iPad application, and can preview the document to obtain an overall view of its progress. Copies can be made of existing resumes to allow for experimentation without loss of the original. The iPad application allows the user to create a new resume based on his/her linkedIn profile; export to PDF using various style options; export to RTF and edit the resume on a computer using MS Word or other word processing programs; send the resume directly via email on the iPad; upload the resume to a DropBox account; and rename and rearrange sections. The user is therefore given firm guidelines, but also the freedom to incorporate his/her own personal touches. Pocket Resume allows your resume to be a work-in-progress. We are always building up new experience, and our resumes are never complete. At any time, the user is able to pop in, and edit existing information without difficulty. The iPad application is available in English, French and German.
